Black spider ...ID needed

Well Tetley - I am in Essex/Greater London, so location is good...also says the jaws reflect green which was commented on in my first photo...I think you could be right, it all seems to fit. 

Plant ID please

Well, I have had my eyes opened to a cast array of spiders I nver knew existed. They are definitely the right shape and have hair like mine too. This one looks very similar...

Hi Alan, Looked at the link. The head seems too wide for my spider, however It is a great link and the site provides ID's of spiders - I think I will register with them to get the experts to take a look.

Thanks jo47 - spider would have been squashed underfoot! Family think I'm mad - nothing new there

Mouse spider looks the best fit so far - I've never heard to them. Is the abdomen hairy enough ...
